    Isn’t this a garlic flower? Just guessing by the way the stem looks. Whatever it is , it sure is pretty.

      It is in the Allium family, but this one is decorative, planted expressly for pollinators. I think this one may be called Gladiator. I planted them too long ago to remember:)

        Hmmm, does that mean that the honey has a hint of garlic in flavor and aroma? Last week in Apalachicola, we were in Tupelo Honey territory. I learned from one of my books I read for the Bee Badge, that the concentration of Tupelo trees exist in this part of the Florida panhandle up into the lower parts of Georgia. I was lucky enough to find a local farm stand and purchase their honey. It was $15 for a 12oz jar but there is nothing quite like it in taste and color when you get the real deal.

          I haven’t noticed too many of my honeybees on it, but it’s been covered in other kinds of pollinator insects. Tupelo honey? Very cool.

    I really like this flower, I’ve always seen them in catalogs and wondered how they do. So pretty!
